Musical Guest: The Devoted Few
While in Australia, Samantha had the pleasure of interviewing The Devoted Few. The Devoted Few are Ben Fletcher, Skye Knight, Barry Adamson, Dave Hunt, Adam ‘Wesley’ Gregorace & Sam Miller.
In our first episode of 2009, the band sits down with Samantha to talk about their album Baby, You’re A Vampire. What kind of album is it? We’ll let the band give you a few more clues:
“It’s got music that sounds like a city going up in flames, and words that sound like the poetry you hear in your dreams. It’s got songs about love, songs about war, songs about dead poets, and songs about those guys who pissed the band off.
It’s got at least one song about the futility of all human endeavor that nevertheless makes you want to dance like a lunatic, and a couple of songs about vampires to boot. It is a world-class Australian indie rock record. It’s the new album by The Devoted Few – and they can’t wait for you to hear it.”
We can’t wait for you to hear it too. Check out The Devoted Few, on this week’s episode of The Highway Girl.
Tech Tuesday returns this week featuring an interview with Stuart Coupe from Laughing Outlaw Records. Stuart, who also manages The Devoted Few, sits down with Samantha to discuss the indie music scene in Australia and being an artist in the digital age.
Check out this amazing podcast with the lovely, talented and all around wonderful Martha Wainwright. In this podcast Martha talks to Samantha about life, music and her album, “I Know You’re Married, But I Have Feelings Too.”
